Importance of Satellites after Natural Disaster

After natural disasters such as earthquakes, landslides, hurricanes and various floods, satellite imagery is very important. In particular, satellite data are used to implement emergency plans, measure the severity of damage, make alternative rescue plans, and organize various relief campaigns.

The International Space Agency supports states by sharing satellite images free of charge. In private companies such as Maxar Technology, it processes satellite imagery to create more comprehensive maps and shares them with governments.

Planet, which is the program of Maxar Technology, compiles its images by compiling orthorized data with a resolution of three meters. Planet uses images to provide data to humanitarian and charitable organizations and make maximum use of technology in doing so. It also transforms high-resolution images into a whole new dimension with machine learning and mass sourcing techniques.
